pentagon correspondent barbara starr. she's getting new information on paula broadwell. what are you learning, barbara? >> wolf, some really stunning new information. cnn has learned from two u.s. officials that paula broadwell's security clearance has been suspended. she is a serving reservist, if you will, with the u.s. army, a military intelligence analyst. as such, she would at least have a secret level security clearance. we are now told that security clearance suspended pending the outcome of several investigations. we went to the army to ask them for an official response. they will not say anything except the following. and let me read it to you. "appropriate actions with regard to this officer's clearance and access have been taken." the statement goes onto say "the army has been cooperating with federal law enforcement authorities in this matter. and those actions are ongoing." wolf, you will recall a couple of days ago the fbi went to broadwell's home. we all saw the video of fbi agents taking away boxes of material, computers. the discussion centering around what kind of c
an admonition to, quote, back off, came from paula broadwell. while combing through broadwell's e-mails they came upon david petraeus. let's stop it here and bring in suzanne -- suzanne kelly in washington, our intelligence correspondent. suzanne, a lot of ground to cover here. we have this video that has surfaced of paula broadwell, last month, speaking at the university of denver and she's speaking here as david petraeus' biographer about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. let's take a listen. >> i don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the cia an annex had taken a couple prisoner and they think the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get the prisoners back. that's still being vetted. >> where did she hear that? did it come from david petraeus and do we know if her claim was true, the cia was holding captives inside a consular annex in benghazi? >> right, ted. this raises serious issues. she clearly said in the video the information she was sharing on libya and the cia holding prisoners there hadn't been vetted. so that means she is sharing som
security. but this investigation is clearly still open. you have hagents going into paula broadwell's house, taking out boxes, taking out her computer. they are still looking for classified material. whatever too soon maybe it was something for the book. maybe it's a schedule that's classified. you know how this works. everything in the military is practically classified including weather reports. i've sat through briefings and it's classified. in terms of it being illegal, if she has classified material in her home, it is illegal. now, she had a clearance. she could read classified material, but not in her home. they've now yanked her security clearance we just learned this evening while this investigation continues. but she shouldn't have had classified material. i think what they're talking about is in terms of so far, they haven't seen, you know, pillow talk i guess is what you could say, that david petraeus was telling her any agreement secrets. they haven't seen that. but you also go back to the week of the the 21st and paula broadwell was talking about benghazi as it she knew somethi
. >> paula broadwell emerged from her brother's northwest washington home yesterday. and in a strange bits, the twist with the other strange details, mrs. broadwell's north carolina driver's license was found by a jogger in rock creek park monday and authorities say they have no idea how long it had been there. >> thank you very much. i see one of the tabloids here is referring to this as real house lives of sitcom. >> but there are many unanswered questions. why is the white house and eric holder potentially getting a pass in all of this? it came out a few days ago that eric holder, the attorney general of this country, knew that the fbi was investigating the director of the cia but apparently as close a friend as he is of obama, he never told obama until two days after the election. do you buy that? some say it's a double standard. >> the fbi director, when i was the attorney general, had come to me and had advised me that the cia director of a suspected of having an affair, i would have notified the president of the united states. i would are done so because an affair by the cia directo
, and the military does, too. he's very happy where he's at now. >> that was paula broadwell on "morning joe" back in january, the woman at the center of the alleged extramarital affair. and we use the word "alleged" very loosely there with cia director david petraeus which led to the resignation from his post on friday. good morning. with us on set, msnbc political analyst, john heilemann. the president on the council on foreign relations, richard haass and author of "foreign policy begins at home: the case for putting america's house in order." and from washington, we've got nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell. the great john heilemann also here. >> we also have willie geist. >> the great willie geist also here. >> we did your show. it's a cute little show. >> it's fun, right? it's a good show. >> how's your new life? >> it started nine seconds ago, so i'll let you know. >> your swan song on friday being called by some the greatest swan song since the beatles recording abbey road. >> the "m.a.s.h." finale, i got a lot of that. >> so what's the chances that this paula broadwe
, general allen, jill kelley, paula broadwell, we are a war-weary nation but these men have overseen our troops, allen seeing 68,000 of our troops. there is a tipping point here where people are going to get angry to know what the back story is. >> i think so. i think ruth is also partly right when she says there's a sex scandal salaciousness that makes it appealing to the public and media but at the same time there are bigger issues. i think the fiscal cliff is an important issue that should come up at the press conference. this issue with benghazi, overly politicized by republicans during the campaign, now we can finally get real hard answers and talk about appointments. susan rice is an excellent candidate to be secretary of state and i think that john mccain came out just today and said he was opposed to her nomination. i don't think that's a fair statement because susan rice was simply following the advice from general petraeus who john mccain says was a hero so there's a great deal of inconsistency in the republican messaging that needs to be answered. >> mccain's biggest obstacle
investigation which revealed the affair between general petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell. the newest twist, nbc confirming that broadwell e-mailed general allen first from the handle kelley patrol warning him about jill kelley painting her negatively. "the wall street journal" reporting that she tried to stop the fbi investigation that she started. this is news that nbc has not yet confirmed, however, we have been able to confirm that kelley called police over the weekend claiming to be an honorary consul-general and citing diplomatic protection in an effort to get the media including nbc off of her property. >> i'm an honorary consul-general so i have inviolability so i should -- they should not be able to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved, as well. >> video taken by nbc shows diplomatic plates on her car. south korean authorities say she is an honorary consul and the state department says it has no connection to kelley. >> i can assure you that she does not work for the state department and has no formal affiliation with the state dep
broadwell. now, paula broadwell allegedly sent threatening e-mails to jill kelley who is a "tampa socialite" who did charitable work for the military. broadwell apparently thought that kelley was also having an affair with petraeus. and upon receiving broadwell's e-mails, kelley contacted the fbi which began investigating. now, jill kelley also has hired crisis communications expert judy smith. she has worked with monica lewinsky with kobe bryant and with former senator larry craig. and that all has a lot of folks scratching their heads. why would a woman who was the target of a nasty e-mail or two need a reputation fixer? well, it turns out that while investigating petraeus, the fbi uncovered 20,000 to 30,000 potentially inappropriate pages of documents mostly e-mails that kelley exchanged with general john allen. and who is general john allen? he is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan and he is the man who's nominated to be the supreme leader of nato. as you can imagine that, nomination was put on hold in light
. >> and on the paula broadwell end of things, where does that relationship stand with general petraeus? are they still friends? are they talking? have they talked? >> well, i would imagine, for legal reasons, they probably shouldn't be talking right now. it is the case that when the affair ended in the summer, they continued to stay in close contact. paula broadwell is still working on a dissertation in london that is centered on general petraeus' leadership and command style. so they were seen publicly and had lots of contact before the affair, during the affair and after the affair. in fact, her book and her masters thesis before that and her dissertation afterward were sort of what the intelligence people would call cover for presence and cover for action. they were going to be together a lot either way. in that way, that didn't raise eyebrows. >> bart gelman who has got the cover story on "time" magazine. bart, thanks for coming on and sharing with us this morning. >>> we've got a lot more coming up. including more reaction from are the senate. and also that business meeting that the president has
. and others say that paula broadwell, her security clearance is now suspended. also, petraeus will testify about the libya consulate attack after all, before a closed hearing of the house intelligence committee. that will happen tomorrow. >>> bp has reportedly agreed to pay an unprecedented fine and admit to criminal misconduct in connection with the 2010 deepwater horizon spill. reuters reports that bp and the justice department have cut a plea agreement that could be announced as soon as today. bp will only confirm that it's in advanced discussions is and they haven't reached a final agreement. >>> cy young award going to the knuckleballer and the fireballer. the new york mets' ace r.a. dickey won the national league sigh you cy young. in the american league, it was the young flame thrower, david price. the lefty very, very good, of the tampa bay rays. he won the cy young award. price tied the american league for wins with 20. >>> so mitt romney is taking heat from at least one top republican for claiming the president defeated him by giving gifts to young minority voters. listen to how
. the trail led to paula broadwell, who co-wrote "all in," a biography of petraeus. broadwell described her extraordinary access to the general earlier this year on cnn. >> at some point i think he realized i was taking this research very seriously. i was sharing hardship with the troops and risk and so forth and decided to open up a little bit more access. but we had a relationship before i went there, as far as this dissertation was concerned so it just took it to another level. >> reporter: the end result was a flattering biography, summed up this way when she appeared on the daily show to promote it. >> the real controversy is here is, is he awesome, or incredibly awesome? >> broadwell is a married mother of two. she's an honors graduate of west point, a retired army research major who served for 15 years. petraeus resigned friday, admitting to cheating on his wife of 38 years, holly. and citing, quote, extremely poor judgment. a u.s. official says petraeus was never the target of the investigation and his communications were never compromised. now as you said, soledad, petraeus was sup
uncovered by an fbi investigation into a series of e-mails sent by his biographer, paula broadwell, who was accused of sending harassing e-mails to another woman. that sparks an investigation that revealed her secret relationship with petraeus. but after looking at a recent speech she gave on the death of four americans in libya, people started wondering whether she and petraeus had shared any classified intel and whether she inadvertently spilled some of those secrets during her remarks. bill gross joins us live, what's your impression of this situation as it's playing out? >> well, it's certainly a very interesting situation, as you say. there's a joke going around on twitter that the french intelligence director resigned because he doesn't have an affair for six months. so the idea that an extramarital affair in itself would bring down the cia director is very isn't in my mind. there has to be more to the story. my guess is it has to do with internal cia politics. the agency's known to be using intelligence information to settle scores, or it could be related to the benghazi scandal.
star general resigned friday after admitting an affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. and investigators are asking why they didn't know about the investigation sooner. >> we received no advance notice. it was like a lightning bolt. the way i found out, i came back to washington thursday night. friday morning, the staff director told me there were a number of calls from press about this. i called david petraeus. >> and are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't notify you before? >> yes, absolutely. this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. there is a way to do it. >> and several top republicans are demanding petraeus come back to capitol hill this week to testify before congress over the attack on the american consulate in benghazi. >> i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. so from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress so we can figure out benghazi.

there is an ongoing leak investigation, which is why fbi agents were searching paula broadwell's home. so he's left himself some room there. he mentioned the protocols and withholding judgment. what he's referencing is a 2007 attorney general memo that talks about communications between the white house and the justice department on criminal investigations. that they're supposed to be between the attorney general and the deputy attorney general, with the white house counsel, and the deputy white house counsel. we don't know those communications take place and, by the way, this memo, says the most important thing is that there should be no inhibition to those communications when it affects national security or espionage. which means if somebody was hiding behind this memo to not tell the white house, they probably were wrong. and i think the president is waiting -- withholding judgment, but likely they should have told him. >> all right, everybody stand by. because there is a lot more to do, to discuss including the president, what i thought the president's very generous comments to mitt romney, his
